Hornady introduces its new hot rod bullet line.
« on: April 24, 2019, 08:29:48 PM »
The Hornady A-Tip Match. High BC, aluminum tipped.

6mm 110gr G1 .604

6.5 135gr G1 .637 / 153gr G1 .704

.308 230gr G1 .823  / 250gr G1 .878

Looking forward to them hitting the distributors. I hope a .338 bullet comes in the near future.

Big problem for some of us will be not having enough twist to shoot most of these.  I've got an 8tw on my 6.5-284 so I'm good there and look forward to shooting the 135's but my 300AX (30-338Lap Imp) only has a 10tw so that'll be no bueno for those new 30 cal bullets for me.

Im really surprised that they didn't drop the 7mm and .338 as they would have the highest BC gain.

I have no clue how these will shoot or perform but I can tell you these things are VERY consistent and uniform from bullet to bullet.  I grabbed 10 from each of the two boxes I have and base to ogive in 20 bullets only varied from .7095 - .7100 

Overall length for 19 of the 20 was 1.3865 - 1.3870 and the odd one was 1.3880

These are the most uniform bullets I have ever measured.  How all that translates to how well they shoot, only time will tell.

Wonder if Yorke still has his bullet testing thingy setup, be interesting to see what these AL tipped bullets do when they hit something.
